Publisher Description

‘A powerful story and Piers Dudgeon tells it with skill and feeling’ Daily Telegraph


Born into the bleak industrial heartland of Tyneside in 1906, an illegitimate child with the courage to escape and discover her true self, denies her people, reaches rock bottom, and then writes her way back into their hearts as Catherine Cookson. 


Illustrated with 25 striking personal photographs, this is the REAL Jarrow Lass of Janet MacLeod Trotter's bestselling trilogy, the ultimate rags-to-riches romance delivered hard-edged by folk who lived in the same street as Catherine Cookson as a child and knew first-hand the pain that hardship and alienation brings.


Cookson fans will love it, but so will readers of Pam Weaver and Mary Wood, and Helen Forrester's uplifting stories of families rising above grim poverty in the working class North.
